Italy. Flight controllers strike on 2 April
An industrial action of flight controllers from 1.00 pm CET to 5.00 pm CET of Sunday 2 April 2023 could affect the schedule of ITA Airways flights. The Airline was therefore forced to cancel some domestic and international flights of 2 April 2023.
To minimize inconvenience for passengers, ITA Airways has put in place an extraordinary plan and rebooked the highest possible number of travelers impacted by the cancellations: 35% will be able to fly on 2 April.
ITA Airways invites all customers already holding tickets for travel on 2 April to check the status of their flights before going to the airport on the ita-airways.com website, or by calling the airline at the toll-free number 800 93 60 90 (within Italy), at +39 +39 06 8596 0020 (from abroad).
Travellers holding tickets and eventually affected by a cancellation or schedule change of ITA Airways flights on 2 April can rebook their flight at no additional cost or penalty, or ask for a full ticket refund (only if the flight is cancelled or the delay on departure exceeds 5 hours) by 5 April 2023.
List of cancelled flights is available https://www.ita-airways.com/en_it/fly-ita/news-and-activities/news/strike-8-june/voli-cancellati.html
It is recommended that travelers flying into or out of Italy keep an eye on events, prepare for potential flight disruptions, confirm their reservations before heading to the airport, and get in touch with their airline for more details.
